Recession, recovery and service delivery : political and judicial responses to the financial and economic crisis in South Africa.

Pillay, Anashri and Wesson, Murray (2016) 'Recession, recovery and service delivery : political and judicial responses to the financial and economic crisis in South Africa.', in Economic and social rights after the global financial crisis. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, pp. 335-365.

Abstract

4 is chapter discusses the e5 ects of the global # nancial crisis on South Africa. It considers the economic e5 ects of the crisis and the government’s response. It also assesses whether the crisis has had any impact on the judicial enforcement of economic and social rights. South Africa provides an interesting case study for two main reasons. First, because its transformative Constitution includes directly enforceable economic and social rights and, second, because the Constitutional Court has produced an in6 uential body of case-law giving e5 ect to these rights. 1 For these reasons, the South African experience might seem to hold valuable lessons for the role that economic and social rights can play as the # nancial crisis continues to unfold in other parts of the world.
